St. Michael Ottawa LOVED our presentations on Friday. The staff all had very positive reviews; the artist, the content and the length. A few said it was a good work out ... for the kids and staff! We are looking forward to the remaining sessions!

Thanks for being part of our St. Michael Community!

Yesterday was fantastic! Everything went off without a hitch. The artists were wonderful and the kids really enjoyed it!

The staff were very impressed with the quality of the session as well. They learned some really great things to do with their students as well! I would book The Travelling Stage again in a heartbeat!

Catherine Gasper Vice-Principal St. Elizabeth School (OCSB)

Oh my daughter loves this class so much. Rachel is an excellent teacher. I am truly impressed how she gets my daughter to look at her and gets her to answer a question or supply a suggestion. My four-year old is shy on camera and you can hear me off screen saying "do you want to say flamingo?". And Rachel will calmly say "Alice, look at my face. Do you want to be a flamingo?" and in that simple action - Alice will suddenly start talking. We love that it's sharing and talking but following instructions and listening to stories - it has everything. We have done the Princess tea party as well.

All of the staff found the artist to be knowledgeable, personable and inviting. The children were engaged during their workshop and our experience with your office has been excellent. Your team is well organized, professional and a pleasure to work with.
Looking forward to our next session.

The workshops were absolutely fantastic. It was amazing to see the instructor interact with 50 grade 3s and 50 basketballs at the same time. All staff were very impressed and will recommend to other colleagues at other schools. We will organize again for next year!

D. Falbo, Brookville PS, Campbellville, ON

The workshops on Friday were amazing!!! The kids absolutely loved it! Our guest artist was great at getting the kids to listen and get them all involved. He did tell them he was in Camp Rock and they were all very impressed!

P. Felteau, St. Wilfrid CS, Pickering, ON

The workshops surpassed my expectations. The routines were complex but easy for the students to remember and do well. Teachers were able to take material taught by the instructor and use it as an assessment piece. Thank you!

The dance workshops were amazing. Our guest artist was so patient and full of enthusiasm. She was absolutely wonderful and the children and teachers loved her!

I just wanted to say THANKS for Monday’s workshops. Our guest artist was AMAZING and the kids did a great job in such a short time. We will definitely book something next school year!

L. Rehill, St. Bernadette CS, Ajax, ON

The fact that the presenters had real world acting experience was very intriguing to the kids. That brings an element of authenticity to the whole experience. See you next year.

Our workshops were a BIG hit once again. I have only heard positive comments and my principal was thrilled too! Thank you for everything.

My husband and I would like to express our sincere thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you. For this past year and a half our son has grown tremendously and his world was enriched so much because of you! He was so excited to attend every class and was looking forward to the next one! Thank you for the wonderful job you do and thank you for making a difference in this world!

My students learnt a lot from the Stage Combat workshop and really enjoyed it!

N. Phillips, Administrator, Montessori Learning Centre of Pickering, Pickering, ON

We enjoy having Travelling Stage – I have found all the instructors to be warm, knowledgeable and professional. Thank-you for the great service.

P. Crowther, R.E.C.E., Executive Director, After-Four Children’s Enrichment, Scarborough, ON

The children had an awesome experience with our guest artist. She worked off their ideas and let them explore the world of theatre and imagination. We have several children who on a good day, do very little speaking or interacting with the other children. Well they got right into the whole program. They were giving ideas and even being a bit bossy. Our guest artist taught at the appropriate level for the various ages….a little something for each age group with out leaving anyone out. Everyone was up and moving the majority of the time. The kids are still making up skits and a few directors have emerged from the group. Thank you so much!

C. Foley, R.E.C.E., Assistant Supervisor, Jackson Trails ELC, Stittsville, ON

Our guest artists were really great. They were friendly, organized, worked well with the kids and successfully taught an entire routine in 30 minutes. Their music choice was fantastic. The “true test” was getting the grade 7’s on board and that was also a success! I circulated the gym floor a lot to help keep behaviour in check but both instructors had a good direction for the students and set clear guidelines for paying attention etc
